>> thanks for having me. >> alan krueger from the white house. >> hi, rick. >> hi, melissa lee. wow, you know, we are really seeing some buying going on in the treasury complex. quickly go through the major charts interday. 5s, 10s, 30s, all down a half a dozen basis points. 2s out to 30s are lower in yield than they were a week ago. so that's something to pay attention to. foreign exchange, if you look at the euro versus the dollar, fresh 14-month high on the euro side. if you look at the dollar/yen, fresh 30, one-month high, benefit dollar. if you look at the euro/yen, fresh 34-month high, benefit of the euro. we're continuing to see the big currency trends continue. many say they may continue for quite a while. of course, we have more big data today, and i'll be bringing it out for you, david faber, and carl, back to you. >> thanks, rick. see you in a few minutes.
